"Salentein Gran VU Blend represents the deep commitment that Bodegas Salentein has made in the Valley de Uco. This wine is the crowning glory of years of work and research in our quest to understand the terroir that we have identified and selected to produce the best wines in Argentina. Having taken this trajectory with grapes from many different regions of Mendoza, I am convinced that we have found the vineyards and varietals to perfect this blend. Gran VU Blend is a paean to the Valley de Uco and the wines of Argentina." - Jos Galante
